I will be starting nursing school in august for LPN. It will take me 14 months to complete the program. I want to be a nurse but want to know should i just stop at LPN or do the bridge at the same school for my RN? My goal is to move to florida in 2016 however, i dont see a lot of LPN openings in florida. My friend is an LPN and she said she makes the same amount as an RN here in Ohio but it is a hustle. What is really the difference between the 2, other than LPN can not hang blood? I guess i have a lot of questions as well.
